Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

Have you guys started planning Christmas yet? I’ve always liked to plan in advance, but now, especially with the kids, I start organising stuff quite early. I’m quite an organiser, let me tell you. πŸ˜„I have almost completed my Christmas gift list which is amazing (I usually waited a week before Christmas) so I can focus on other important stuff, or let’s admit it, the most important – Food 🍽 What’s Christmas without some indulgent food. It’s all about get together and share some amazing food, isn’t it.Β πŸ™‚Β I have planned so many recipes that I’m sure I’m not gonna be able to make all of them.

Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

OK, back to the recipe now..I added some fresh salad, tomato, mayo and of course, cheese. πŸ™‚ This simple sandwich turned into perfection. I easily had a coupe of these, they’re actually smaller than they look. πŸ˜€ Also, I added lots of hot sauce. Seriously, it was one of the best brunches ever. πŸ™‚

Brisket & Eggs Breakfast Sandwich

I love the fact that this is so quick and simple to make, the only cooking is actually scrambling the eggs but it takes a few minutes too. So, the Brisket & Eggs Sandwich is perfect for a lazy morning/brunch and not only. I honestly can have it for lunch & dinner too. Why not?Β πŸ™‚

The combination of sweet Brioche bun, mild cheese & salty brisket works so well. Just add some crunchy salad and enjoy! I didn’t make any sides for these sandwiches but chips will be great, or even sweet potatoes.

Here’s what you need for the Brisket & Eggs Sandwich

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Happy Friday guys! Today’s recipe is Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole – seriously delicious and comforting one pot meal, just add some freshly baked (lots of it!) bread to it and serve it hot for a tasty heart-warming meal! πŸ™‚

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Honestly, I had about half of a bread loaf with this casserole and if I didn’t stop myself I would probably have had the other half too. πŸ™‚ This Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole is just screaming for a delicious bread to soak the tasty juices with. I don’t have such meals very often but now the weather has changed, I’m sure this will change too. I seriously need to improve my self-control skills and be able to stop after having a generous amount though. πŸ™‚ But try to look through my point of view – you get home after a long and exhausting day, haven’t had any food all day, froze yourself off at the park and finallyΒ  put the kids to bed and…see a pot with hot Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole and freshly baked bread! πŸ™‚ How could you not eat half a loaf of bread with it. πŸ™‚

Pumpkin & Chicken Casserole

Well, this was my story (or something like that) about what happened with the Pumpkin & Chicken casserole. Everyone really enjoyed it too! No leftovers and no bread left either. πŸ™‚

So what’s in the casserole – Pumpkin, chicken, celery, Chorizo or any other red sausage and spices. As you can see – really simple, just a few ingredients but the taste is incredible. I can honestly say this has become one of our family’s favourite ‘Winter Warmer’ recipes, for sure.

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Turkey Breakfast Burgers – succulent turkey patty , melted Emmental, ripe avocado, roasted red peppers and a fried egg! Mmmmm…It’s just a dream (or it was) πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Seriously, the colder the weather gets, the higher the calories in my recipes are. πŸ™‚ Just joking, not necessarily. But what I mean is, we all get a craving for a nice warm soup/stew, succulent burger/roast or anything comforting that will warm you up. πŸ™‚ Now, that doesn’t mean we eat such comfort food every day, but the truth is I do make them much more often in the Fall/Winter period than Spring/Summer (I believe most of you do too). πŸ™‚

Turkey Breakfast Burger

Back to this Turkey Breakfast Burger…

I was actually thinking to add hash browns instead of the avocado and roasted pepper but then I wanted to serve it with sweet potato chips so I scratched that out. Also to put the scale a bit on the healthy side I thought It’d be nice to add some ripe avo and peppers. Do they count as your five-a-day? πŸ™‚ Probably not. πŸ™‚ However, they worked amazing with the fried egg and just completed that Breakfast Burger.

Turkey Breakfast Burgers

The whole thing was very simple to make. I admit, this time I fried the burger patties, instead of grilling or baking them. The reason was that I was in a real hurry and of course, I was sure they’ll turn out very juicy and delicious (as they did). If you ask me though, If you’ve got the time, the best way is to grill them, and the tastiest! I’d definitely recommend that. But again, fried are more than delicious too. πŸ™‚

Succulent Cod Burger

Happy Sunday! Recipe of the day is Succulent Cod Burger – simple, tasty and so much better than the usual take away fish and chips!

Succulent Cod Burger

What a lovely weather we are having today! After a chilli and not so sunny week, finally some sunshine. Not that I’m outside enjoying it but I really love how light and sunny is in the house. And I’m just happy when the sun is shining, no matter in or outside. I only got one regret – why is the weekend always so short and not enough? Honestly, I need three days, at least. πŸ™‚ I bet many of you would agree with me. πŸ™‚

Succulent Cod Burger

Let’s focus on the recipe though..

Succulent Cod Burger

So about this Succulent Cod Burger, seriously, how could I haven’t made it before. It’s one of those simple recipes that you just discovered but seriously fallen in love with. Actually, the whole family did. What’s in there – cod fillets, which I gently cooked with some cornflour and herbs, melted Emmental cheese, mushy peas and tiny bitΒ spicy mayo (for the adults only). I used brioche buns which were just perfect for this burger and added some more sweetness to it. To serve, I made some sweet potato fries, which we all love in our family. They are ridiculously simple to make – simply cut the sweet potato in chips, season and bake in the oven with some oil. You can even add Parmesan cheese or any other toppings you fancy. Seriously guys, the whole combination was just spot on.

The fact that nothing was left proves that everyone really enjoyed it. I myself could easily had one more of these bad guys, unfortunately (or fortunately πŸ™‚ ), there weren’t any left.

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Happy Thursday guys! Today’s recipe is Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta – comforting, simple and perfect for a busy weekday dinner!

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

Before my daughter started reception I thought I’d have a few spare hour a day. But it turned out I’m actually busier than I was when she was at nursery. I only got one and a half hour when the little one is napping. Then I have to wake her up and go collect her sister. So, yes, no time really but I try to work with whatever I have. πŸ™‚ This is why it’s essential to cook quick, easy but tasty food too, especially during the week when we’re rushing all the time. Not that the weekends are calmer. Both kids have activities on Saturday and Sunday, so yes, there’s always something. But at least during the weekend I can spend some more time in my tiny kitchen and test and create some yummy stuff. πŸ™‚

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

This Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta is one of these quick, easy and tasty recipes. I even used theΒ Roasted Kale & Feta Cheese DipΒ so it was even easier than I thought. All I had to do was to boil the pasta. The kids are not very fond of kale, but they thought this was just pesto and I didn’t bother to tell them that it actually was my kale dip that they didn’t really fancy. πŸ™‚

Kale & Smoked Salmon Pasta

I should probably title this Leftover Pasta as it appears I’m using leftovers again – my Kale Dip and some Smoked Salmon but as you now know that let’s focus on the recipe..:-)

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps – juicy shredded pork, scrambled eggs, fresh spinach and some pots, all combined in a wholewheat seeded wrap! This is what I’m calling a breakfast for champions! πŸ™‚

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

And you know what the best part is – this is all made from leftovers! Yep, that’s right. I had some pulled pork and roasted pots left that everyone refused to have (we all had a serious amount of the pork so I don’t blame theM πŸ™‚ ). So I stuffed some wholemeal wraps with it! I added some scrambled eggs, as I was making breakfast, fresh baby spinach, so they’re not that naughty (not that it helped) and of course, some sauces. The result was fantastic. We finished all of them in one go. πŸ™‚

Pulled Pork Breakfast Wraps

I can’t believe my just turned 4 baby is going to school tomorrow. When did she grow up? Someone pinch me! Have you guys got any tips/tricks for dealing with the first day of school stress (this is for me). As much excited my daughter is, I feel a bit nervous. I believe this is normal and I’m sure she’ll be fine. But so many feelings at the moment. I might be overreacting too. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I’ll update you how it goes. Back to my recipe now..

Turkey Meatball Fajita

Happy Tuesday! The recipe of the day is Turkey Meatball Fajita – succulent turkey meatballs with sautΓ©ed peppers and onions, wrapped up with some other extras! πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatball Fajita

I’ve never had meatballs in a wrap till now. I’ve missed a lot. These wraps are so rich and juicy you barely need anything else. But because I’m greedy, I had them with sauteed peppers and onions, some hot sauce and a tiny bit of light mayo.

The peppers and onions kind of turned them into fajitas I think, but honestly, cheese, guacamole and other topping would be just too much. As I said, the meatballs, peppers and onions are more than enough. Plus, they work perfectly together and adding other ingredients would spoil the whole thing. πŸ™‚ However, I should’ve made more of the peppers. The kids really enjoyed them and snacked on them. Make sure not to overcook them though. Leave them a bit crunchy, thus they taste much better. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatball Fajita

Why I used turkey mince? Well, I simply love it. Even though it says it’s lean on the pack and there’s less fat in it, it still tastes amazing – really juicy, which is not typical for lean meat, especially turkey, I guess.

Anyway, I recommend it! Also, it’s supposed to be a healthier option. πŸ™‚ They’re really simple to make – some breadcrumbs, seasoning and one egg. Then simply sautee some peppers and onions and serve on a tortilla wrap! Simple and absolutely delicious!

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

Happy Tuesday ally! Today’s recipe – Three Cheese Savoury Muffins or should I say bread – Β is simply amazing.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I can’t tell you how delicious these cheesy buns turned! Yum, yum, yum…

The cheese literally exploded, imagine how much was in there. If you are cheese lover like me you’d love these, no doubt. There’s Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella & Feta. And the recipe is actually quite easy. I saw a similar recipe on the web and I really liked the idea, I haven’t used the same ingredients though, I kind of made my own muffins/buns. Really not sure how to call them – they’re baked in a muffin tray so that’s why I called them muffins but on the other side are like bread/buns. Anyhow, you get the point. And it is that they’re super delicious.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I had barely finished taking photos of these beauties and they were all gone. πŸ™‚ Well, I helped too. In fact, I did a really good job finishing three of these Three Cheese Savoury Muffins. πŸ™‚

Here’s how to make Three Cheese Savoury Muffins.

The dough is made of flour, yeast and milk. I should say, I am not that good in making dough for bread but this was really simple and turned out delicious. All you need to do is to combine the ingredients, work the dough and then wait for it to rise.

This is another delicious recipe using muffin tray. It makes me think I actually need to change mine, it’s been a good few years of use. In fact, I need a whole lots of baking equipment. Can’t wait to pick up some new and exciting stuff soon.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

I used dry parsley again. As I Mentioned in my previous post I’ve been using it very often. It’s all chopped up for you and ready to use. Plus, you’re not gonna need to worry how to store it for longer. On the other side though, fresh is best. πŸ™‚ But this is what works for me at the moment.

Three Cheese Savoury Muffins

The Three Cheese Savoury Muffins would be ideal snack for picnic. They really got me thinking about spring, sun and picnics. My daughter absolutely loves having picnics, so as my whole family and I can’t wait for the weather to get warm and sunny so we can enjoy a nice day out.

I should probably make a double batch of these then. πŸ™‚

They are perfect for sharing, as a side, as a snack, just one of these get together recipes. Make sure to have them when they’re nice and warm and the cheese is melted. Nothing better than a melted three cheese bun. Nom, nom, nom. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Happy Thursday! Here’s the recipe of the day – Turkey Meatball Pizza!

Turkey Meatball Pizza

I even made the dough from scratch! Not that it’s too difficult, it just takes a bit more time but it’s totally worth it. Of course, if you’re time-restraint, you can always use shop bought dough.

Turkey Meatball Pizza

So, more about the pizza now..I used Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese, cheery tomatoes, sweet red peppers, black olives and a bit of spinach. I love both meatballs and pizza and the idea of having both in one mealΒ sounded really good. For the base, I simply used flour, yeast and olive oil, really simple, but again a bit time-consuming. I topped dit up with tomato sauce and then arranged all the other ingredients. It was quite loaded pizza, succulentΒ and cheesy, one of my favourite thing to have on movie night. πŸ™‚

And the weekend is just one day away so I might have to make this pizza again. πŸ™‚ I don’t know about you but my weekends go by too quickly, really quickly. It seems the anticipation is so long and thenΒ you wake up and it’s Monday again. There’s never enough time to relax, cook, meet with friends, watch movies and have fun with the kids. Seriously, we need an extra weekend day.

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Back to the food now…Feel free to add sauces you fancy. I usually add some garlic sauce and of course, lots of hot sauce. But to be honest, this pizza is quite juicy, so you might skip the sauce. But on the other side, meatballs with hot sauce are so tasty. πŸ™‚

Turkey Meatball Pizza

Here’s what you need to make the Turkey Meatball Pizza

Turkey Meatball Pizza

  5. Spread the tomato sauce and sprinkle the cheese on top.
  6. Add the peppers, spinach leaves and tomatoes.

Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas

Happy Tuesday all! Today’s recipes – Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas – quick, easy, comforting and very cheesy!

Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas

I’ve made a whole tray with these succulent wraps (probably about 10) and they were all gone in less than an hour after I served them! πŸ™‚ Can you imagine? We must’ve been really hungry. ButΒ these enchiladas were seriously delicious!

I remember thinking to myself, “OK now, I’ll make more so may be we could use some for tomorrow’s lunch”. Yeah, right, didn’t happen that way but they sure were much appreciated by everyone. πŸ™‚

Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas

They’re quite budget friendly too. All you need is a bit of ground turkey, fresh spinach & cheese. You can add some tomato sauce, if wished. To tell you a secret, I used ketchup. πŸ™‚ I know, there much better ingredients to use for the enchiladas but this is what I had that was closest to tomato sauce. Well, it’s actually made of tomatoes. I honestly, don’t really fancy ketchup, it’s way too sweet for me, but it worked wonders on the enchiladas. πŸ™‚ So feel free to use any ingredients you’d like. πŸ™‚

I kind of had to hide the spinach in between the turkey and cheese (for the kids) but it worked well and they enjoyed the enchiladas with the hidden spinach. πŸ™‚

Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas

For the cheese, I used grated Mozzarella & Cheddar. I would have loved it if I could add some jalapenos but the kids wouldn’t really fancy the enchiladas, would they. πŸ™‚ So, as usual, I added a generous amount of my favourite hot sauce (half a bottle). πŸ™‚

Of course, when making Mexican inspired dishes, there should be some coriander, so I sprinkled some coriander leaves on top. I served the with a sliced avocado and sour cream

I believe I could have these every other day, this is my type of comfort food. πŸ™‚

Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas

Here’s how to make these Turkey & Spinach Enchiladas:

  6. Serve with some fresh coriander leaves, sour cream and sliced avocado.

To make them even more filling, you can add some pinto beans in the wraps, or even some lime & cilantro rice. It’ll become a burrito/enchilada but as long as it’s tasty, it doesn’t really matter.
